Survey to Determine Interpreter Shortage.

Your Participation Needed!

The National Collaborative of Interpreter Education Centers (NCIEC) is conducting a federally-funded, wide-scale assessment project to quantify the interpreter supply and demand nationwide.

The purpose of the survey is to determine the shortage of interpreters in the United States.

If you decide to take part in this study, you will fill out a survey/questionnaire about when you need an interpreter, the types of settings in which you need interpreters and when you cannot get interpreters. It will take about 7 minutes.

Links On Deaf Political Candidate.

I live ten blocks away from Emory Dively district to vote him to the Minnesota's House of Represenatives on November 7th. Normally I would vote on a person's political views but hey, Emory is Deaf, I'd vote for him. You can learn more of Emory at his website

Yesterday, one of the most read newspaper in the state of Minnesota, Pioneer Press, printed a nice article on Emory. Click on the link below. You will also get to view Emory's campaigning technique.

Today in the same newspaper, a columnist Joe Souchery pokes fun at Emory's campaign. Read about it at the link below.

Tomorrow on November 2nd from 7-8:30 pm, there will be an open debate between Emory and his opponent for the district 64B at the College of St. Catherine. I should also note that the College of St. Catherine is one of three colleges in Minnesota that offers interpreting programs and also offers ASL as a major or a minor.
